This Thursday (April 23rd) brings the return of the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, and Thor in the highly anticipated Avengers: Age of Ultron, sequel to 2012’s blockbuster Avengers Assemble.
The first film in the franchise was a smash hit and made over $1.5 billion wordwide at the box office, comfartably making it one of the most successful films in the history of cinema. With the imminent return of the beloved superheroes BoxOffice Magazine are projecting that Age of Ultron will have the largest opening weekend, in terms of revenue, of all time.
Surpassing the first installment, critically and commercially, would be some feat should Marvel Studios accomplish it. And why shouldn’t they? The Dark Knight, Superman 2, and Spiderman 2 are generally regarded to be three of the very finest superhero movies to have been made; each one a sequel.
One thing is guaranteed, the latest Avengers effort will be the cinematic event of 2015. The premise (as you may gather from the trailer) is that following the events of the first film Tony Stark/Iron Man (Robert Downey Jr.) has developed a peacekeeping progamme in the form of Ultron (James Spader), a self-aware, self-teaching robot. Ultron, in all his artifical wisdom, decides that humanity represents the greatest threat to peace on Earth and seeks to eradicate the species and it’s up to The Avengers to stop him.
With the films comes the merchandise. The toys, the clothes, the special edition DVDs, the video games; The Avengers are everywhere, and now they can be on your child’s wall. Here at WallDecals.ie we have numerous different superhero decals to choose from.
